...ezra, you might be able to order one from the manufacture of your boat, pretty expensive though!!

what you got for a boat? I have a couple off Sea Rays in the barn rafters that are new. we never used them since storage of them is an issue on my boat.

the boat I am thinking about the pads for is a 1997 27 chris craft concept. you should e bay those pads from what I have been learning $1500 is the starting point.was also thinking about the keeping of them on the bow and thinking if I have made I would have some kind of sunbrela snap on cover made for it.my boat is kept in a old school wood boat house so no rain or sun worrys more dirt and bird crap.

I could hook you up with the "Recovery Room" this guy does fantastic work. prices are good but he takes awhile to do the work. he is like 90 and has a shop behind his house. I just picked up my wifes motorcycle seat he had for 5 months it is very nice and professionally done, but you will wait. We also have tons of canvas shops on this side of the pond (lake MI) that could do your sunbrella cover for a decent price. Gives you an excuse to come over for a visit.

would this work http://www.cabelas.com/product/Boating/Boat-Seats/Boat-Seat-Accessories%7C/pc/104794380/c/104705280/sc/104230080/Cabelas-Bulk-Replacement-Vinyl/1151571.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fboat ing-boat-seats-boat-seat-accessories%2F_%2FN-1100618&WTz_l=Unknown%3Bcat104230080 then get some foam and the neighborhood seamstress to put it together from a template you make. I am looking for someone to teak my salon, the carpet is wearing out.

probable same stuff labeled under a different name. I don't think there is a huge demand on the stuff to warrent a ton of competition.

same way to install. I will make my own template and cut out myself. I have a general knack for this sort of stuff. I did my templates for carpet I replaced in cock pit and mid cabin and it worked perfect. I will not use the clear plastic they want to sell for this product. I like to template with the white painters paper with coating on it and I rough in with scissors, then fine tune inner and outer corners with masking tape. You can write notes on the paper as reminders what to do in certain areas of the template. I did my swim platform this way also. I could shape paper and tape to make template fit around the Davits and Zodiac motor mounts along with outer radius of platform. Looks way cool and looks like a Pro install. Carter (carpet guy) would be proud of it!
